The highly anticipated sequel to Dreadnought, featuring "the most exciting new superheroes in decades." (Kirkus, starred review) Only nine months after her debut as the superhero Dreadnought, Danny Tozer is already a scarred veteran. Protecting a city the size of New Port is a team-sized job and she's doing it alone. Between her newfound celebrity and her demanding cape duties, Dreadnought is stretched thin, and it's only going to get worse. When she crosses a newly discovered billionaire supervillain, Dreadnought comes under attack from all quarters. From her troubled family life to her disintegrating friendship with Calamity, there's no lever too cruel for this villain to use against her. She might be hard to kill, but there's more than one way to destroy a hero. Before the war is over, Dreadnought will be forced to confront parts of herself she never wanted to acknowledge. And behind it all, an old enemy waits in the wings, ready to unleash a plot that will scar the world forever.… (more)

diverse teen fiction (transfemale superhero makes enemies, saves the world, and gains a girlfriend)
action-packed with a little romance. ( )

Yep, much better than the first. Still some seriously glaring non-supers physics issues, but stronger character building and some serious fun as regards, "Well, how's all this work then?" ( )

It’s a different tone from the first book, but every bit as enjoyable. Like Dreadnought, this was another spend-the-day-reading book. Loved it. ( )

Tore through Sovereign: Nemesis fairly quickly. It wasn't as good as Dreadnought: Nemesis, but still absorbing. I thought it odd the juxtaposition of the team's PG attitude towards their foes and the terrible death toll at the end of the book.

Danny is a full-fledged superhero, but she’s still struggling—with her parents, who are fighting her emancipation; with her friends, who aren’t always acting so friendly, and most of all with her anger, which makes her maybe a bit too fond of fighting. A new villain, working with transphobic Greywytch, might be enough to push her past the point of no return. The book is pretty explicit at showing how engaging in violence makes Danny feel better, but also endangers her friendships and ultimately her status as a hero. ( )
